Computex 2008: Antec Finds Skeleton in Closet

Subject: Cases and Cooling | June 4, 2008 - 03:00 AM |

I'm sure this pun has been put to paper several times already this week, but who am I to break tradition?  When I stopped by the Antec suite at Computex this year there was a completely unique case design sitting right out in front screaming for attention.  It was dubbed the Antec Skeleton.

This design is less a "case" in the traditional sense and more an open test bed type of computer chassis.  With slide out drawers on rails that allow you to move the motherboard section and power supply section out from under the ENORMOUS LED-lit fan, it is a frequent-component-changers dream case.  Which means that you will be sure to find several of them in our testing labs very soon!

There was also a smaller model on display that was in the development process still made for mini-ITX motherboards and the likes.  While I don't know how useful that would be for Intel Atom or VIA Nano-based systems, it was cute to see a nearly identical, but shrunk, counterpart.  The full ATX versions should be available in July/August time frame so expect a review from us very soon.
